Yasir Shah

Yasir Shah (born 2 May 1986) is an international cricketer from Pakistan who is the joint-second fastest bowler in the history of Test cricket to take 100 wickets, as well as also being the fastest to pick up 200 wickets, having broken the previous record set by Australian bowler Clarrie Grimmett. He is a specialist leg break spin bowler and is known for his leg spinners, flippers and googlies. He is regarded by Shane Warne as one of the best spinners in modern cricket.

Shah made his Test match debut for Pakistan against Australia in the UAE on 22 October 2014. During Pakistan’s tour of Sri Lanka, Shah became the fastest Pakistani bowler to take 50 Test wickets. In December 2018, during Pakistan’s series against New Zealand, Shah became the fastest bowler to take 200 wickets in Tests, breaking an 82-year old record.

In an ebullient episode, England seamer Stuart Broad received a penalty by his own father and match referee Chris Broad for giving a send-off to Pakistan’s leg-spinner Yasir Shah in the three-match Test series opener at Old Trafford in Manchester. Broad was spotted using inappropriate language after dismissing Yasir during Pakistan’s second innings. The leggie
